GDPR Awareness Workshop – 11th April, Birmingham

25th May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) becomes law and it will affect practically every business in the UK.

This is a new set of rules governing how companies can gather and use personal data such as names, email addresses, credit card details and more.

It is important for consumer-facing businesses to understand the impact these reforms will have on their operations, as failure to comply could result in significant fines.

To help GGF members prepare for this incoming legislation, the GGF is running a one-day GDPR Awareness Workshop this April aimed at helping consumer-facing businesses fully understand their data protection obligations.

The GGF has partnered with Cybercrowd - specialists in information, cyber security and data protection - to run this special one-day GDPR workshop this April in Solihull.

The workshop has been designed to help companies get up to speed with GDPR and what changes they’ll need to make to ensure compliance.

The agenda will include a general background to GDPR and sections on accountability, legal requirements, the significance of all aspects of data processing, and what to do if you get a subject access request.

GGF Head of Membership and Training Richard Hearn commented:

“We appreciate that GGF Members and others in the glass and glazing industry are busy running their businesses, so we wanted to make it easy for consumer-facing companies to get a useful overview of the new GDPR legislation.”

The workshop will take place at the Arden Hotel, Solihull on April 11 and will include interactive break-out sessions and open discussion forums.

GGF Members can attend for free

The GGF’s GDPR Awareness Workshop is free to attend for GGF Members. Non-Members can also attend at a cost of £245.

GGF Members may nominate the individual or individuals from their business they would like to attend. This is likely to prove popular so we will take bookings on a first come, first served basis.
